I think that, if you you're an operator doing ULL, and you have a fibre
backhauling, then the vast majority of costs you incur in, is the ULL
line rental which is not charged on bitrate but rather a fixed amount
per pair. therefore, your costs are essentially fixed. will you limit
the capacity to x Mbps while the access line could bear X Mbps ? one of
your competitors will not and he will get the customers.
It seems to me that capacity pricing can work where costs are somewhat
capacity related (e.g. where you don't have fibre backhauling, where you
don't have mandatory ULL to the incumbent,...) but, otherwise I have the
impression that you might end up having just one capacity class which is
